The Participation and Health Improvement of Children and Young People with Type 1 Diabetes

The UK has the fifth largest population of children and young people with Type 1 diabetes in the world and the North East has one of the highest populations in England. There are particular concerns relating to the care of young people with Type 1 diabetes, the complications of which often leads to them failing to reach their potential in education and employment with huge implications for the NHS, tax and benefits system. Self-management and education are vital components in improving outcomes for children and young people with Type 1 diabetes.

Working with T1KZ (Type 1 Kids) this project has designed motivational and educational pathways using simple Telehealth – pathways designed by children and young people for children and young people. By expanding T1KZ throughout the region, an environment will be created where children and young people, together with their parents, can support and learn from each other.
